Black Opal - Creators Stone

The discovery of black opal is closely tied to the indigenous people of Australia, particularly those from the Kamilaroi and Anangu tribes who lived in the Lightning Ridge area of New South Wales.

According to legend, the first black opal was discovered by a group of Aboriginal people who were traveling through the area. The story goes that they came across a large rock that was shimmering with a rainbow of colors. When they broke open the rock, they discovered a vein of black opal that was unlike anything they had ever seen before.

The Aboriginal people believed that the opal was a gift from the creator and that it had great spiritual significance. They used the opal in their ceremonies and believed that it had the power to bring good luck and prosperity to those who possessed it.

Over time, word of the black opal's beauty and value spread, and people from all over the world came to the Lightning Ridge area to mine for the precious gemstone. However, despite the commercialization of the opal industry, the indigenous people have continued to play an important role in the mining and production of black opal, and their knowledge and expertise have been passed down through generations. Today, black opal remains an important part of the cultural heritage of the indigenous people of Australia. Black opals are a type of opal that is characterized by a dark body tone, which can range from dark gray to black. What makes black opals so unique is their play of color, which is a phenomenon where the stone appears to display a rainbow of colors that shift and change depending on the angle of the light.

Black opals as said before are primarily found in the Lightning Ridge area of New South Wales, Australia, which is known for producing some of the world's finest black opals. The opals are formed from silica gel that seeps into the fissures of rocks and forms a hard, mineralized gel that eventually becomes opal.

Black opals are highly valued and prized for their rarity and beauty. The value of a black opal is determined by a variety of factors, including its body tone, play of color, pattern, and size. The most valuable black opals are those that exhibit a broad, vibrant play of color against a dark background.

In addition to their aesthetic value, black opals have also been used for their purported healing properties. Some people believe that black opals can help to improve mental clarity, emotional balance, and spiritual growth.
